Chinese Whispers and Other Stories
Janelle Low 'China and Billy Balls' from the series Reconcile, 2016 (image cropped)

This group show at Blindside explores cultural identity and the myth of a multicultural Australia from the perspective of four young female artists

Curated by artist Pia Johnson, this exhibition features her own work alongside three other female photo-media artists of Chinese heritage: Tammy Law, Janelle Low and Siying Zhou. Together, their works reveal the tensions and difficulties in navigating multiple cultural identities from a young female perspective, while also examining the broader context of mass migration and the diaspora.

Chinese Whispers and Other Stories previously showed at PhotoAccess at Manuka Arts Centre in Canberra.
